Ok, when I build something and do not use CFLAGS, is the code still
optimised, because host is guessed as i686 and gcc gets/uses parametres
like: "-DCPU_...", can't remember that right now, but anyway..? Because
that --host doesn't affect on --march. And what comes to that CFLAGS,
isn't it just dropped away on LFS 2.4.4?
